Bionda Castana is a British fashion label known for its stunning designs, ultra-feminine shapes, elegant styles, and unapologetically glamorous shoes.

Showing masterful Italian craftsmanship, each shoe is handcrafted using materials of the finest quality.

The creative process involves meticulous attention to detail and a great emphasis on comfort to ensure that the shoes are stylish yet wearable. Fans of the label include Ahna O’Reilly, Bella Thorne, Sophia Bush, Debby Ryan, Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel, and Rashida Jones.

In 2016, the shoe brand ceased operations. Natalia Barbieri and Jennifer Portman, who founded the label in 2007, reportedly could not come to terms with their investors. The label was briefly relaunched in 2018 with a new direct-to-consumer, zero-waste strategy.

On July 30, 2021, the brand ceased operations once again. “Here at Bionda Castana HQ, we have decided to take a break and focus on some other exciting projects for a while,” the label announced on Instagram.

“We want to thank our community for your continued support over the past 13 years. By no means is this the end, just a pause,” the founders added.

For its Spring/Summer 2014 advertising campaign, Bionda Castana enlisted the help of photographer Dima Hohlov and stylist Natalie Brewster to create a modern chic vibe.
